Top 100 Luxury Fashion Trends in 2016

From Graphic Gucci Tees to Obscure 2D Couture on the Runway

— January 29, 2017 — Luxury
These top 2016 luxury fashion trends include a slew of traditional couture and streetwear-inspired designs, demonstrating the continued convergence of different fashion genres.

Gucci played a large role in this recently, unveiling distressed graphic tees, bold bleached jeans and embroidered leather jackets. The designer brand also collaborated with Timberland, resulting in the release of lavishly branded work boots. Other footwear released from the brand included casual snake-emblazoned sneakers and floral high-tops.

Also featured in these 2016 luxury fashion trends is Givenchy's underground rave-inspired collection, which incorporated statement graphics, colorful patterns and face masks. During Paris Fashion Week, Elie Saab Haute Couture revealed matching looks for mothers and daughters, making for an adorable show that stuck with the audience.
